After a week of assuming this was the case, I thought I’d be over it, but this just re-opens the wound.
My deepest condolences to the family.
If I’m being honest, I didn’t personally know Fnork all that well, other than being one of the familiar faces in the ladies club subforum, but that doesn’t really matter, because she was one of those people you didn’t have to know well in order to really like.
Her posts were always fun to read, and she was always part of the conversation, and just knowing that she might be gone earlier this week was enough to make me lose sleep due to bad dreams. I couldn’t tell you more than a few actual facts about her, but I feel like I’ve lost a friend I’ve known for years. Which, when you really get down to it, I have.
Erin, we never met in real life. We never really talked directly to each other. But you were an important part of this community, and it hurts like hell knowing you’re gone. Rest in peace, and know we love you. <3
